being a part of something big

Are the kids spending time with Mukuro? c:

Jataro-kun, you haven’t done anything beside following me around for the whole day, are you sure you don’t want to go play with the others?


No, I’m okay with staying with big sis Mukuro !


O-Okay then…You said you paint something earlier, can I see it?


Of course !


And I will paint another one with big sis Mukuro, Daimon-kun, Shingetsu-kun and Kotoko-chan !


That’s great, but you need to paint with us too, you are a part of this group too, you know?


!!


I-I will ! Even if me being on it wastes the painting, since big sis Mukuro wants it I will do it !

I think part of my initial hangups about trans women accessing gay maleness and using the discourse of that sort of experience to process parts of their lives (something I made a big fuss about and now accept I was very much wrong to attack people over) is that for me gay maleness was never a zone of transgression or freedom, it was what was expected of me by authorities. And not even in a “ugh, our son is a f*g” sort of way, but an “A***** will admit he’s gay when he’s ready” way. An acceptance that very much did not transfer over to me being a trans woman, mind you.

so i saw a post analizing the WD statue + Rebecca's comment that not being a statue and with the fact it seems to be armless,the big arms being part of a bigger robot was right and honestly? i really don't like it,i would have loved it they had just arms

it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a ship it could be her castle or something.

dating advice: the “captain america” rule

Context: I grew up in a family of nerds, and superheroes were always a really big part of my childhood. Captain America was a favorite, and he kind of became my family’s standard for good behavior and just generally being a Nice Person. (If one of the kids started a fight they’d get hit with, “What would Captain America think of how you’re acting?”, stuff like that.)

So when I got to high school and started dating, my mom told me something that sounds funny but in retrospect actually turned out to be really good advice:

“Date someone who treats you the way Captain America would. Never settle for less.” 

And this has actually helped me so much in my dating life, through high school and into my adult years, because even if it’s a little silly, it’s been really helpful to have that standard in the back of my mind when I’m first going into a relationship. 

Would Captain America ignore my calls? Would Captain America forget my birthday? Would Captain America get mad at me for cancelling a date because a family emergency came up? If the answer is no, then I know that the person I’m currently dating does not meet my standards, and that I need to break things off before they get too serious.

And your standard absolutely does not have to be Captain America, specifically. It can be any person, male or female, real or fictional, who is known for being respectful and considerate. It can even be an imaginary “soulmate” that you make up yourself. The point is to have a specific idea of how you expect to be treated by your romantic partners, and to refuse to compromise or settle for less. (Just make sure you’re holding yourself to the same standards – you can’t expect to date superheroes if you’re going to treat your partners the way a supervillain would.) This is a really good way to keep yourself from falling into bad relationships where you aren’t treated with the respect and care you deserve.

TL;DR: You deserve to date people who are respectful and considerate of you. You deserve a Captain America. Don’t settle for less. 

random college tips

i. get to your classroom early if you don’t have a class beforehand

not only are you guaranteed the best seat in the house, but there’s something about being in a classroom or lecture hall that makes you feel productive and focused. bring a book or writing assignment for a different class with you and just Do It

ii. pack your bag the night before

especially if you have early morning classes and are not a morning person. this will help you have a less stressful morning and will help you make sure you have everything you need for the day prior to leaving your dorm

iii. don’t overannotate

annotations are designed to help you identify the most important parts of the book/novel, meaning important themes, character development, big events, the implications of said events, etc. by over highlighting and over annotating i can guarantee you you aren’t doing yourself a favor !!! i’m gonna make a post later about how i annotate so be on the lookout

iv. stay on top of your readings

seriously. it is a pain in the ass trying to catch up on a week’s worth of reading in five different classes. it is stressful, it’s time consuming, and it’s exhausting. even if you’ve had a long day and you’re not in the mood to read an entire 20 page chapter in your american government textbook, just do it !!! your brain and your mental health will thank you the next day

v. try your hardest not to miss class

i’m mentally ill and prone to sickness, so i understand that sometimes it’s hard. it also feels worse when you miss class and have no idea what’s happening, so if you think you can get out of bed, lets get to class so we don’t fall behind and get extra stress thrown on top of us!

vi. fridays are homework days

think of it this way: if fridays are homework days, saturday and sunday are free days !!!!

vii. proofread your papers before you turn them in

guys i literally never do this (i know i’m a bad egg) and im always suffering for it. if your college/university has a writing center/something similar please go there, especially your freshman year !!! they will help you learn how to accurately and succinctly convey your thoughts on a college level and you will be so grateful later on i hate myself

viii. ask if the professor prefers a certain citation style

if you dont get a chance to ask during the class/lecture, send them an email. i once got my grade halved because i didnt use APA when the professor didnt specify on the syllabus/assignment sheet. so do urself and ur gpa a favor and ask

ix. always bring extra pens/pencils to class with you

somebody will forget theirs and they will sit next to you and if ur in a class with 30+ ppl that has group projects or presentations coming up you’re going to want friends

x. college kids love gum

if u bring gum you got all the friends in the world my guy i dont know why this is a thing but it is. one girl cried during exam week last year because i gave her a piece of my gum and that was literally the highlight of her week

ok thats my random ass list of stuff regarding college !! i’ll probably make more masterposts like this b/c this was fun as heck. if u have any questions/need advice, just hmu !! you can check out my other masterposts here.

Happy birthday space dad !
Team voltron gave him his presents on the 28th this year !

Mars - sexual styles

They can easily be on both sides, dominant or submissive. It’s not much of a mood thing but they can be either, it’s all up to them and they know they have the real power because of this: Gemini, Sagittarius, Capricorn

They want to dominant in bed, control is a big part of what turns them on. Without it, it just doesn’t feel right with them. Only when they completely trust their partner, they’ll let go of their controlling nature: Scorpio, Aries, Leo

They want to make the other person happy, doing almost anything to please their partner. They like seeing the other happy and pleasing their partner to them is like pleasing themselves but that doesn’t mean they don’t like being taken care off too: Cancer, Taurus, Aquarius

They’re interested in intimacy rather than something that’s just physical (although they could have something casual), the actual act is pleasing of course but it’s the end they’re looking for. The aftermath, satisfaction and smiles. Their style can change quite frequently too: Libra, Pisces, Virgo

Check Venus too~

so i’ve been thinking a lot about tumblr’s “anti-recovery” mindset and come to the conclusion that a lot of it is actually anti-wellness.

some people can’t recover. for example, i have ADHD and autism and i’ll never recover because there’s nothing to recover from - it’s hard-wired in my brain from the day i was born.

but wellness isn’t about forcing yourself to be neurotypical. wellness is about being content and satisfied and trying to be your best self - and for a lot of us that is not neurotypical! 

speaking of my personal experience with ADHD and autism that i just mentioned, for me, wellness would be minimizing symptoms i dislike and that are harmful to me or other people (executive dysfunction, lack of focus, erratic behavior, etc.) while maximizing and appreciating the symptoms of my neurodivergence i love (ADHD makes me creative and colorful! autism makes me passionate about the things i love and strive to know everything about them!)

so really i think a big part of it is understanding the difference. if your neurodivergence is something you can recover from (i have many other diagnoses i believe are recoverable) and you want to recover that’s great! but you don’t need to be neurotypical to be well, to be satisfied and happy and your best self. 

neurodivergence isn’t bad. people aren’t bad for being neurodivergent. but we should encourage people to find good ways to be happy and satisfied and use their brains to help them, not hurt them

being part of a fandom gets a lot easier once you realise there’s more than one way to interpret a character

people tend to forget that dirk doesnt actually like mlp - he just watched it as part of his pop culture scholarship - he just likes rainbow dash. or people are willing to ignore it because dirk being a brony is funnier. but i am here to propose that dirk being a non-brony who just loves rainbow dash is way better

hard dude dirk opening his heart to little cartoon horses is wholesome content. whats much more wholesome is dirk remaining unswayed by mlp - its not great, its not bad, its just a cartoon for kids. whats the big deal - except for that one fucking horse. something about that little butch pony strikes a chord with dirk. he is immune to the standard kids cartoon messages of love and friendship, he recognizes that its just a vehicle to sell toys, he has watched too much kids tv for this to hit home for him. but rainbow dash! that one particular pony! its something about her specifically. he loves her, wholly and unironically

we have all fallen for one particular character in an otherwise mediocre or unlikeable franchise. its relatable

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty

⊳Calling A Familiar Spell⊲

Originally posted by dancing-at-the-funeralparty

    Familiars are one of the witches greatest companions. If youre knowledgeable about familiars you might want one yourself. There comes the problem of finding one. Sometimes you may already have a pet or spirit in mind, but others you may be totally lost. I do not recommend under any circumstance buying a pet just for the sake of them being your familiar. You cannot tell at first glance whether you two will be a good pair and its not fair to the animal if you end up giving it away because it isn’t able to be your familiar. The best option is for you to do some magic so you and a potential familiar can meet and bond.

    Now, onto the spell, but before you do this make sure you genuinely want a familiar and think they would be a big part of your craft. Here is what you’ll need;

◆ A jar(or container of some sort)
◆ A piece of paper and something to write with
◆ A tag lock from you(a piece of hair, a nail clipping, spit, etc)
◆ Dandelion fluff or bay leaf
◆Rosebud(if you don’t have this, you can substitute it with pink sea salt or rose petals)
◆Basil
◆Catnip or cinnamon

    First take your paper and writing utensil. Write down the ideal traits of your familiar(you can add a sigil on it if you’d like). Now fold it up however you want and put it to the side, you’ll come back to it later.
    Next take your jar and put in half your ingredients, then add your tag lock. Now you can add the other half of the ingredients.
    Now you can put your paper in the jar. After that, screw on the lid and place you hands on the sides. Envision you and your future familiar working together and being friends, put all your intent and hope into the jar. Now shake it up, letting the energy buzz around in the jar. Stop when it feels right. Leave it somewhere you go often(like beside your bed or next to your altar). Whenever you feel super witchy and passionate about getting a familiar you can shake it again. Now a familiar will find you, or you will find them. Good luck!

bitty being nervous about nhl scouts. part 1

Ransom and Holster were arguing about something when Bitty’s attention returned to the world around him.

“There was a scout there, bro!”

“Yeah, to check out your cheekbones!”

“No, man, to check out us. Get us all NHL contracts! Right, Bitty?!” Ransom bumped him with a shoulder. “You’ll be able to afford King Arthur Flour. For every pie you make.”

Bitty choked on his own spit and got into a coughing fit, doubling up while two enormous bros patted him sympathetically.

“Is Bitty dying?!” Chowder had dashed back from where he’d been giving Tango a big-brotherly pep talk ahead of them. “Bitty, speak to me!”

Living As A Crossdresser

As I’m sure many of you are aware, I moved into my own house at the start of the year. Obviously I was excited for a whole multitude of reasons (like having my own mortgage… yay… adulting) but one of the biggest was having the freedom to crossdress whenever I like.

Originally, I thought this would simply mean that I wouldn’t have to worry about when I would have a free house and I wouldn’t need to plan my crossdressing photoshoots around whether someone else would be home or not (a lot of photoshoots had to be cancelled because of family members not leaving when they were supposed to…). It wasn’t that I would crossdress more often, just that I wouldn’t need to hide when doing it.

However, over the last week, I’ve been breaking one of my cardinal rules. 

I’ve been crossdressing without makeup.

Fuck me, I didn’t even wear a wig.

I’m very much a go hard or go home kind of girl; I’ve always said that I wouldn’t see a point in crossdressing without doing the makeup and the hair. For me it’s all part of the same package. I wouldn’t apply that rule to anyone else of course, but for me I’ve always either done everything or nothing at all.

So what was the point then? Is it really such a big deal that I wore a dress around the house without bothering with the rest?

For me? Yes. Yes it is.

It might sound a bit backwards, going from looking like a woman (or at least a close enough approximation…) to being a bloke in a dress, but it’s certainly something I needed. 

This wasn’t about being convincing. This was about being comfortable.

I guess that’s the real point of this post; being comfortable. I’ve spent years upon years telling others and myself so many different rules. Wear concealer to hide beard shadow… get a wig the same colour as your natural hair… dress for your body type… All of these different things without remembering the key rule:

Do what makes you feel comfortable and happy.

You want to wear a dress and keep your beard? Do it.

Wearing a bra under your work clothes? Do it.

Wanna walk around your house naked in platform heels? Do it.

We all should do what we’re comfortable with and what makes us happy. For me, that’s about looking as feminine as possible, but sometimes I might just want to wear a skirt because fuck it why not.


DISCLAIMER: Ok so this post got kind of sidetracked… It was actually meant to be about how you can live your regular life as a crossdresser, but you’re all sensible enough to know how to do that anyway.

I did also have the photoshoot just over a week ago (thank you again to everyone who tuned into the Q & A on Instagram!) and I’m going to be posting photos from it on a weekly basis, starting…. NOW

I’m going to post more about this outfit later on in the week, so just consider this a teaser for now!

Until then…

OK HEAR ME OUT POLNAREFF ADOPTS GIORNO TRISH AND MISTA 

  • giorno does pols hair up in rolls and they talk about their ridiculous hair styles
  • pol spoils trish (like he wouldve spoiled sherry) and acts more as a big brother figure PLUS MATCHING SHIRTS
  • mista is a big baby and likes to sit in pol’s lap 
  • polnareff calls jotaro every time his kids do something cute and always invites him and jolyne over
When you’re not speaking your own language, there’s a part of you that’s not being expressed, there’s a difficulty there, that you feel like something in the structure of your own soul that’s not coming across. Delphine’s accent is not an accent, it’s actually like a translating difficulty of language and I think it’s metaphorically a bit what she is. I think in a way she has, I think for her, her motivations are very clear, I think she’s a pretty focused big picture type of girl but if you wanna save somebody’s life and if that means lying to them, if you’re a focused driven person, you’re gonna lie to that person and what i’m gonna take away from Delphine is that. Is that she doesn’t care what people think about her, she doesn’t care that all the sisters doubt her, that all the important people to the most important person in her life doubt her. She knows what she’s doing and I think it’s interesting to keep that mystery for the fans and even for Cosima. But for me, the motivations have always been clear.

Some non-spoilery thoughts on Mass Effect: Andromeda because I’ve seen a lot of people worried about negativity surrounding the game:

  • the squad banter is great, and there’s a lot of it, and it’s really welcome. it brings a lot to exploration and fighting
  • speaking of fighting, this is the best shooting in a 3rd-person game that I’ve seen in well, ever. the jump jet is ridiculously fun to use while shooting.
  • and exploration? fantastic. Ryder’s scanner is super handy and gives you a lot of information about the environment. the level design is great, as are the plant and animal designs.
  • I’m a big fan of the new dialogue system. paragon/renegade was something heavily associated with Shepard. this new system feels a lot more like Ryder, and a new start.
  • the facial animations aren’t all that bad, unless you’re going to record your conversations and then go back, frame-by-frame, looking for a few ridiculous expressions. you don’t really notice all that much when you’re paying attention to the story and what’s being said.
  • the eyes are…flat (I’m also playing HZD atm, and the eye textures in that game are incredible, so it also could be bias on my part)
  • the music, so far, is good. I was really worried about it, but I find that the galaxy map theme is the best piece so far.
  • the galaxy map - holy fuck, it is so fun
  • cc - not impressed, tbh. twins don’t always look identical anyway, and it’s pretty disappointing that you can’t customise Sara or Scott. the presets range from okay to horrible. Inquisition spoiled us.
  • I’m really happy with the writing so far. lots of great characters that I’m loving. the voice acting is pretty damn good too.
  • we’ve finally got height differences. hell, the salarians are tall. so are the turians. feels good. feels organic.
